Bowls: Last week the team played at home to Chailey. On very wet evening, we had a great time. Both teams enjoyed each others company and the bowls was hard fought. In the triples Irene Bell, Alan Green & Gavin Wood lost 8-9 and Christine Norton, Margaret Waterhouse & Joan Howard also lost 8-9. after tea the pairs played with Julie Hawkins and Keith Wood winning 14-8 and Mary & Barry Taylor winning 15-14. This gave both teams 4 league points. The latest table put Burwash in second place, but it is very tight at the top of the 2nd division.
